The Patagonia Region Offers Natural Beauty Like No Other Place On Earth

If you’re thinking of visiting South America, consider the Patagonia region. The Patagonia region rests on the southern portion of South America, partially in connection with Argentina and Chile.

Since it was discovered, and word of its scenery was told, it has awakened fascination, curiosity, and desire for the remote, untouched, and mysterious. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, and it is not mimicked anywhere else in the world.

The Patagonia region expands just south of the Colorado river in Argentina, wedged in between the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. You can really get a feel for what nature looks like unscathed by man. It is a primitive, serene, raw, and awesome nature.

The semi-arid plateaus of the Eastern part of the Patagonia region are surreal to look at. The Western mountain ranges have deep valleys and canyons, are overspread with trees, and they are topped with snow and dotted with glaciers and lakes. The various elements’ combinations are what’s so breathtaking. It’s seeing all this raw nature in its purest form.

In Chile, the Patagonia region goes from the 8th region to down below to Tierra del Fuego island, connecting to an area of magnificent natural beauty and disarming sublimity. There are volcanoes, lakes, and forests too.

Now s the time to get the cheapest holiday airline tickets

#discount airline ticket
#

The best time to book your holiday flight is.

If you’re planning on flying over the holidays, now’s the time book your tickets.

The report, which was based on ticket sales between January 2013 through July 2014, also found Sunday is the cheapest day to buy plane tickets. This Sunday marks nine weeks until Christmas week, so the clock is ticking.

“It’s about time we stop believing in the airfare voodoo that Tuesday is the best day to get good ticket prices,” said George Hobica, president of Airfarewatchdog.com. The average domestic fare paid on a Sunday is $71 cheaper than on a Monday, the most expensive day, the report showed.

Getting a deal on holiday travel is always hard, but maybe even more so this year, according to Keith Nowak from Travelocity. He said supply and demand is in full effect, giving airlines the pricing power.

Passengers are flying more this year than in the recent past, but airlines aren’t adding more seats, he said. “You’ve got passenger loads growing faster than seats being added. It’s clear given the current load factors, holiday planes are going to be full.”

The most recent data from the Department of Transportation showed the number of domestic fliers in July was the highest since the end of the recession. U.S. airlines carried 385 million passengers, up 2.1% from 2013.

Here are four expert tips to snag the best deals this holiday season:

Book early. Booking early doesn’t always mean better prices, but you’re more likely to get the flight and seat you want, especially given the expected high demand.

It’s all about value, said Hobica. “You can get a good deal on an ugly, ill-fitting cashmere sweater, or you can pay a little more and get what you want. Flying out at the crack of dawn, jammed in a middle seat is the ugly sweater.”

Be flexible with dates, airports. Put in multiple nearby airports and try different arrival and departure dates when searching for flights.

“You want to open up as many fare options as possible to increase your chances of finding the best deal,” said Nowak.

And it’s not just about the ticket price. “Smaller airports might have significantly lower parking prices. If you’re gone for a week, that can be a lot of savings,” he said.

Be persistent. Travelers can hold seats for up to 24 hours without purchasing them with most airlines now, said Hobica, which can make a plane appear fuller than it is and discourage potential fliers.

“People hold seats and then release them. Keep checking the flight, you never know when something might open up.”

Travel on the holiday. Flying on the actual holiday tends to bring lower prices. “If you fly late Christmas Eve, on Christmas Day or on January 1, those are always the cheapest days and times to fly,” said Hobica.

Consider Europe. If visiting grandma in the states isn’t a requirement, travelers can find cheap affair to Europe right now, said Hobica.

“And if you are in the mood to splurge, business class seats are 50-60% cheaper to Europe during the holidays.”

Another Pay Online Option

“Makes budgeting for our road-trip easier.”

“Saves time.”

“Just easier.”

“Have used before. Good customer service.”

“One less thing to worry about.”

Our Flexible Pay Online Terms Beat the Competition

Unlike other car rental companies or third-party Web sites, Budget doesn’t lock you in after you ve prepaid for the rental. Discover how budget.com’s prepay option tops the competition !

Important Pay Online Tips

  • Keep your reservation confirmation number handy because this number is necessary for rental modifications, cancellations or refund requests.
  • Budget.com accepts the following credit cards for online payment: In the U.S. Amex, Visa, MasterCard, Discover. In Canada: Amex, Visa, MasterCard.
  • When you pick up your prepaid rental:

– You must present the same card that you used for online payment.

– All rental credentials required by the Budget location must be presented, and the name on those credentials must exactly match the name on the reservation. At a minimum, a valid driver’s license and major credit card (or debit card if accepted at your location – see rental terms and conditions) in the driver’s name is required.

– All location credit and debit card hold rules will apply. Read the terms and conditions in the online reservation process for specific hold amounts and debit card rules at your rental location. Upon paying your rental with a Debit Card, Budget will generally request an authorization hold against your account for the estimated charges of the rental but reserves the right in its sole discretion, to request extra value based on certain factors as we deem appropriate. Some exceptions may apply. THESE FUNDS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR USE.

When the rental is over we will process the reversal but the bank may take time to post it back to the account – unless you already paid toward your rental, in which case the hold will be only $100 USD. While this hold is in place, the funds will not be available for your use.

– For security reasons, if you are unable to satisfy the credential or hold requirements at the location in which you pick up your car, you will not be allowed to rent. To request a refund for the prepaid reservation, use your reservation confirmation number to retrieve your prepayment information either on budget.com or by calling 800-214-6094 7:30 AM-7:30 PM Mon Fri; 8:00 AM-6:30 PM Sat Sun CST.

  • Most reservation details may be changed without penalty before your scheduled rental pick-up time. Reservation details that may not be changed include method of prepayment, name on the reservation, and some changes to rental location (see pay online terms for details ).

  • If you don’t show up for your rental, we’ll refund the full prepaid amount less a $100 no-show processing fee.
  • Cancel and refund requests must be made on budget.com using the ‘cancel/request a refund’ process accessible when you view your reservation details on budget.com or by calling 800-214-6094 7:30 AM-7:30 PM Mon Fri; 8:00 AM-6:30 PM Sat Sun CST.

    The 5 cheapest travel destinations right now

    Get revenge on the global recession by taking these countries for less than they’re worth.

    Signs of global economic recovery are glimmering, but are they enough to justify taking a major vacation?

    Well, it depends on where you live. Not everyone is recovering, making now the ideal time for those who are to visit some traditionally expensive or even off-limits countries.

    Staying atop current trends in the travel industry, combined with knowing its jargon, can put a once-elusive holiday within reach.

    For instance, look for words like “cost structure” (i.e. insultingly cheap local labor) during research, as well as “distressed inventory” (i.e. time’s running out on these flights and hotel rooms).

    For the value-hunting traveler, we’ve assembled some travel ideas with the help of professionals and economists who know what’s trending.

    While there may be other, more affordable destinations overall, these five are the best values in travel right now.

    Mexico

    Besides the prices, there’s also the advantage of more beach space per vacationer.

    Advance bookings to Mexico for the Legacy Travel  agency are their strongest in 15 years, according to its Vice President, Catherine Banks.

    “Cost structure is different than most other places,” says Banks, meaning Mexico is inherently cheap.

    But combine that with the negative publicity of widespread drug violence (hundreds of kilometers from its most popular tourist spots) and a weak European economy that’s starving Mexico of its customary visitor base, and this country’s ready to make a deal.

    According to Banks, “In Cancun and Riviera Maya, there are more five-star resorts than the Caribbean and Hawaii combined, and the price isn’t close to the same.”

    And now they’re sitting empty.

    Currency conditions: The peso’s been weaker and inflation low in recent months, according to Forex.com Senior Currency Strategist Eric Viloria. So your money should stretch out quite a bit.

    Thailand

    There are enough statues in Bangkok for everyone, as long as photographers take turns.

    Eager to regain tourism lost to the political unrest and flooding of 2011, Thailand is closing itself out at rock-bottom prices.

    “Summer shoulder season (the narrow window between the low and high seasons) seems to be slower than usual,” says  Tony Cardoza, President of  Cardoza-Bungey Travel.

    ” As a result, we see very good four- and five-star hotels and resorts offering deals.”

    That means even cheaper accommodations at the lower ends.

    Currency conditions: The Australian dollar goes over 100 percent further in Thailand than at home, according to The Economist’s Big Mac index , and the euro and U.S. dollar rate almost as favorably.

    Myanmar (Burma) 

    Politically unrestful but restful for the traveler.

    The Republic of the Union of Myanmar could have picked a more profitable time in world economic history to open itself to outsiders, but its delayed departure from despotism is the traveler’s gain.

    “Burma today is similar to Southeast Asia of 20 years ago,” says Steven Larkin, President of Intrepid Travel. North America.

    But the plan going forward may be to go a higher-end route in the development of tourism than neighboring Thailand, so the time is now for a cheap, ethical trip, before even the first Starbucks moves in.

    This is the cheapest Myanmar will ever be.

    Currency conditions: Burma restructured its currency in early April, turning a fixed rate of 6.4 kyat per U.S. dollar to a floating rate of over 800 kyat per U.S. dollar. This should make exchange rates more reliable, but make sure to bring lots of paper money: Myanmar is still largely cash-only.

    Egypt

    Sharm El Sheikh is as relaxing as it ever was. And now it will also be less stressful for your wallet.

    Here’s that distressed inventory we talked about. Tasteless as it may sound, the Arab Spring may have enabled your spring break, driving down demand and prices right along with it.

    “The overall sentiment is that resort areas like Sharm El Sheik are very safe,” says a spokesperson for Hotwire.com. “but most vacationers appear to prefer traveling to Turkey and other destinations that haven’t seen as much civil unrest.”

    That preference has made Egypt a buyer’s market. The drop in demand has another benefit: smaller crowds.

    “Clients going now have been able to get pictures of themselves in front of the pyramids with no other tourists blocking the view,” says Cardoza.

    Your window may be closing, though; presidential elections are looming.

    Currency conditions: The Egyptian pound is sinking like a stone in recent futures trading, foreshadowing a devaluation of up to 50 percent or more. While that benefits foreign currency holders, it can also lead to inflation, making travel plans to Egypt even more urgent.

    Greece

    Honestly though — how could a place like this ever be less in demand?

    All of the turmoil in Greece has weakened tourist demand and, in turn, prices — for the present — but it’s uncertainty about the future that’s really driving down travel costs.

    Right now, many travelers are betting that already low rates will drop further should Greece fall out of the euro, so they’re delaying plans to visit there. This self-perpetuating drop in demand will depress prices even more in the meantime.

    As for the drawbacks, Hotwire’s spokesperson says flying through Athens is a bit risky in terms of service reliability. However, there has been an increase in air service directly to many of the larger island destinations, which are free of the unrest and demonstrations of the mainland, according to John Clifford of InternationalTravelManagement.com . Just make sure you hurry, while they still have roads and stuff.

    Currency conditions: The euro fell to a 16-month low against the US dollar earlier this year, a trend that Viloria sees continuing as debt concerns mount.

    Bonus destination: Spain

    It’s win-win: Spain gets your travel dollars and you get a great value holiday.

    Jetsetter Moves Beyond Flash Sales: Recommendations Now A Third Of Its

    Jetsetter Moves Beyond Flash Sales: Recommendations Now A Third Of Its Business

    Walmart Buys Facebook s Birthday And Holiday Reminder App Social Calendar

    Jetsetter. the exclusive travel community for globetrotters, seems to be on a roll. In recent days, the company has announced a dozen some new corporate partners, a handful of new sale formats to entice customers, and new distribution partnerships with high-profile sites like Kayak. The Economist  and the vacation rental service HomeAway .

    But while many think of Jetsetter as a flash sales for travel site, it’s been finding growth in other verticals: curated recommendations and personal service.

    Launched back in September 2009, Jetsetter was the first flash sales site for travel, and has now outlasted much of its earlier competition. Unlike online travel bookings sites aimed at helping users find the cheapest flights and hotel rooms, Jetsetter’s angle is different. It targets not the everyday traveler, but the affluent one.

    “Jetsetter customers tend to be six-figure incomes, college-educated professionals, and they tend to come from major urban markets – New York, San Francisco, L.A. Boston, Chicago,” explains Jetsetter CEO and founder Drew Patterson. “These are people for whom travel, and their experiences in travel, are an important part of their sense of self,” he says.

    Targeting the elite customer has, so far, paid off. Jetsetter now has 2.2 million members, and has sold over half a million room nights worldwide. On the company’s website, members can take advantage of flash sales on travel, which offer savings of up to 50% off. The site runs anywhere from 20 to 40 of these sales per week. There’s also an online concierge service for bookings to help customers with travel planning.

    The available inventory for travelers now includes over 650 hotels and resorts in Jetsetter 24/7, its full-price retail offering, which today accounts for over 30% of the company’s revenue. There are also nearly 300 homes in Jetsetter Homes, an increasingly popular vertical for the company, with 500 more in the process of being added.

    “The non-hotel category of lodging has been exploding,” says Patterson, noting consumers’ interest in companies like Airbnb and Inspirato, for example. “Consumers are hungry for something other than hotels. It’s nice to have common space, a kitchen and living room versus bedroom,” he adds. But Patterson says that it’s still hard to book vacation homes online, not only because there aren’t many systems that support online booking, but also because of security issues.

    “There are concerns and risks around financial settlement,” he says. “Typically you’re wiring funds with a homeowner, and you’ve never met this person before. You haven’t seen the product before. There’s a fair amount of risk and uncertainty involved in that.”

    Jetsetter wants to step in to be the middleman for those transactions, taking on the financial risk, he says. They curate and vet the properties, even going onsite to visit them. That helps to establish trust with their users.

    In addition to vacation rentals, Jetsetter’s personal travel planning offering executed 600 trips last year, despite having only launched in June. Today, there are approximately 400 trips in progress, which consumers booked thanks to the recommendations from Jetsetter’s network of over 200 correspondents – experienced travel experts and writers who visit the hotels and partners on Jetsetter’s behalf.

    It’s this focus on curation, personalization and recommendation that’s proving to be a growing part of Jetsetter’s business. One third of the company’s revenue came from retail in January, as customers seem willing to pay full price when recommendations are involved.

    Jetsetter is also going after customers through other verticals, specifically through new distribution partnerships like travel site Kayak.com  which will see all 650 Jetsetter hotels made available for bookings, as well as with the vacation rental website HomeAway. which is testing Jetsetter integration  with 150 homes. The company is also working with The Economist  on an exclusive 6-week campaign of flash sales curated for the outlet’s readers, which includes distribution through The Economist’s homepage, newsletters, social media and mobile.

    New sales formats have been recently introduced to provide a variety of experiences for Jetsetter customers. One, the “Mystery Monday” model, will provide deeper discounts to customers willing to book before learning the hotel’s name. It’s not all that unlike the blind bookings Priceline offers, but the hotels selected are of high quality, like The Ritz-Carlton, the Four Seasons, and The Surrey, all of which made an appearance in January.

    There are also two-to-three night getaways called Jetsetter Weekends, focused on a collection of inns and B B’s outside of Jetsetter’s top seven markets (N.Y. Boston, D.C. Miami, L.A. San Francisco, and Seattle). Meanwhile, new “Style Steals” offer discounted rooms at hip, boutique hotels. Jetsetter also says it occasionally runs sales for properties that prefer the voucher format like the Trump Hotel Collection, The Peninsula Hotels, Marquis Jets, and Groundlink, for example.

    With all these sales formats combined, it seems that you can no longer call Jetsetter just a “flash sales site” for travel, even though it has an association with sister site Gilt Groupe. known for its flash sale properties.

    “We obviously have a flash sale part of the business. That’s hugely important because that was our roots,” says Patterson. “But we also found that customers would write us early on and say, ‘I missed the sale. You emailed me something last week and it seemed great, but it’s not up there anymore. Just tell me what it was. It looked great and I want to go buy it.’”

    “We said, Huh?’” he laughs. “But we had enough of these that it seemed like consumers really seemed to trust our judgment. That judgment is an important part of our business and our brand.”

    And flash sales?

    “Flash sales can inspire consumers and give them ideas for where they should go,” he says.

    Egypt, why to go now

    Giza pyramids, Egypt. And yes, they are as uncrowded as this right now. Photograph: Steven Allan/Getty Images

    The sun is soft and warm as I write this. It hangs delicately a little way above the westerly line of palms, mango and guava trees. The waves beat a rhythm against the steel hull, ropes creak occasionally as they hold back two massive sails filled by a fresh northerly breeze, a donkey brays from the banks and a bunch of kids call hello until I wave. I am not a born sailor, but I am on a dahabiya. a replica of the sort of sailing boat an 18th-century grand tourist would have taken – with en suite bathroom, Wi-Fi and a few other modern comforts added. The wind in Egypt blows from the north, the Nile flows from the south, so we are sailing sedately upstream and although I bow to the inevitable, part of me wishes we might never pull in to land.

    Over lunch, the dozen other passengers and myself smile the smile of the smug. The boat is ours in the same way that the Pyramids and Karnak temple had been ours: there were no other foreigners. It is no secret that foreigners are staying away from Egypt, but I have never known it as extreme as this. It occurs to me that there were fewer visitors when we went to the Valley of the Kings on Sunday than there might have been if we had come in 1850. Reasons for this are hard to find.

    Last year was a turbulent one for Egyptians, with the downfall of President Mohamed Morsi and his government and the violent dispersal of Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations by Egypt’s security services sparking violent protests. But none of the tumult was aimed at foreigners, which was why, even though demonstrations and sporadic anti-military violence continue, the Foreign Office has no objection to our travelling to Cairo, Luxor and the south. But visitors have been nervous since 2011, when former President Hosni Mubarak was forced from office, and they have been slow to return to the capital or along the Nile.

    The situation was made worse a month ago when a jihadist group bombed a bus of Korean tourists in Taba, north Sinai. The Foreign Office has put Taba, Dahab and Nuweiba on the avoid all travel list, but Sharm el-Sheikh, the biggest of the Sinai resorts, at the southern tip of the peninsula, is still considered safe to visit, and direct flights are still available. Besides, Taba is several hundred miles from Cairo and the Nile, and the problem there is very different from the stand-off between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood. Staying away from Egypt because of what is happening in Sinai would be similar to avoiding London because of trouble in Belfast, and yet tourist numbers have plummeted.

    The extent of this collapse in tourism was apparent the moment I boarded the Egyptair flight in London. Online check-in had made it look as though the flight was full – as it would have been in March four years ago – but the plane was half-empty. Cairo is such a fantastically vibrant city that it can be impossible to gauge the presence of foreigners, but there were only a handful of tourist minibuses at the Pyramids, no other foreigners at the Sphinx and we had the Tutankhamun galleries and the rest of the Egyptian Museum to ourselves.

    A line of around 20 armoured vehicles parked ou tside the museum, with a soldier at each gun and watched by men from several police vans wrapped in barbed wire, made me wonder if they knew something that I – and the FCO – did not. The Museum sits on the edge of Tahrir Square, once famous for its traffic jams, now better known for anti-government demonstrations. But the square remained calm, the visit to the museum eerily quiet.

    Luxor was just as good – or bad, depending on your point of view – because while an empty Valley of the Kings may be brilliant for those of us who enjoy looking at decorated tombs without being harassed by hordes of day-trippers from the Red Sea, revenue from 20 or so visitors the morning I was there is not enough to pay for the lighting of the tombs, nor to put food in the mouths of the guards and hawkers and their families.

    Luxor, too, is almost empty. Photograph: Jean-Pierre Lescourret/Getty Images/Lonely Planet Images

    Luxor relies on tourism, so when western governments imposed travel bans last summer, many hotels simply locked their doors: occupancy dropped to 1%. Thanks to the efforts of the energetic and enthusiastic tourism minster, Hisham Zaazou, the ban was lifted last November, but the crowds have not returned. The Luxor corniche used to be infamous for its boat touts and cal che drivers pestering any visitor who went out for a walk. They have now disappeared because there is no one for them to pester. The traders who once made it impossible to walk through Luxor souk no longer harangue you as you pass. Want to look? one asked and, when I declined, he simply said, No problem. Have a nice day.

    Which brings me back to the Nile and this second nice day afloat. Egypt is as stunning as ever to visit – especially this week as freak rains have just washed the dust of many years off the countryside, leaving the blue sky, the green palm trees, the cream temple walls and the sandstone hills more brilliant than ever. In the morning, we were alone at the tombs and ruined city. In the afternoon, when we stopped at Edfu to see the best-preserved of all Egypt’s temples, we expected no crowds. We were expecting no bother, either.

    Are you kidding? said one of my fellow travellers when I asked if anyone was bothered by security concerns. I know this situation is bad for Egypt, but it could not be better for you and me. She looked across the empty river where very few boats now run, and watched a heron glide to land on a clump of bulrushes.

    There are things happening in Egypt – two presidents are up for trial, most of Sinai is in a mess, an election is expected – but the news that matters for people wanting to visit is good: direct flights to Luxor have resumed, new archaeological discoveries have been made, a replica of Tutankhamun’s tomb is due to open next month …

    There is no shortage of brilliant things to see in Egypt, just a shortage of people to see them.

    Soliman Travel offers seven nights in a five-star Luxor hotel from 465pp, including flights from Heathrow; and a three-night city break to Cairo, also including flights, from 499pp. Nour el Nil (+20 11 16 55 88 83, nourelnil.com) offers a five-night dahabiya cruise departing from Luxor from €1,100pp, including all meals and excursions

    Cheapest Flights to Istanbul

    Top Destinations Similar to Istanbul

    Istanbul Flights

    Purchasing Flights to Istanbul

    If it is your first time or even your fiftieth time purchasing tickets to Istanbul, you may have questions about how to get the best airfare deal. Finding cheap flights to Istanbul is simple. Any time of the year, through Expedia, you can find great prices on Istanbul flights. However, you may find yourself saving hundreds of dollars by observing a few key rules. Autumn is considered the high season in Istanbul, meaning that prices on travel are higher. If you can travel during low season, which begins in late November and lasts through the summer, you will find the best prices.

    Istanbul Airfare Choices

    There is no need to be overwhelmed by the many options available to you when purchasing tickets to Istanbul. Through Expedia, cheap flights to Istanbul have a number of different routes through a variety of air carriers. When searching for Istanbul flights, think about your personal preferences. Many travelers prefer to fly first class on long, international flights. If you have room in your budget, search for first class flights only. Many flights have stops in such international destinations as Paris, Rome, or Amsterdam. You can pick a flight that has a longer layover so that during your downtime you can explore a new city, or at least its airport. Of course, many international airports offer direct flights to Istanbul as well.

    Book Your Flight with Expedia

    Expedia.com lets you search across the largest number of airlines and flights, which means that you’ll be able to find great flight deals at the perfect travel date and time. There’s simply no substitute for great prices suited to your flight needs and backed by excellent customer support.

    Before You Leave

    International travel can be stressful for the first-timer, but there is no need for nerves. You only need to keep a few details in mind once you choose to purchase Istanbul airfare. US citizens need to have a valid passport as well as a tourist visa in order to enter Turkey. A tourist visa can be purchased stateside, or you can buy a sticker visa at Atatuerk Intl. Airport upon your arrival. Unless you plan on staying in Istanbul for more than 90 days, a tourist visa or sticker visa is sufficient. Should you need to stay longer than three months, you will need to obtain a Turkish residence permit.

    The 5 cheapest travel destinations right now

    Get revenge on the global recession by taking these countries for less than they’re worth.

    Signs of global economic recovery are glimmering, but are they enough to justify taking a major vacation?

    Well, it depends on where you live. Not everyone is recovering, making now the ideal time for those who are to visit some traditionally expensive or even off-limits countries.

    Staying atop current trends in the travel industry, combined with knowing its jargon, can put a once-elusive holiday within reach.

    For instance, look for words like “cost structure” (i.e. insultingly cheap local labor) during research, as well as “distressed inventory” (i.e. time’s running out on these flights and hotel rooms).

    For the value-hunting traveler, we’ve assembled some travel ideas with the help of professionals and economists who know what’s trending.

    While there may be other, more affordable destinations overall, these five are the best values in travel right now.

    Mexico

    Besides the prices, there’s also the advantage of more beach space per vacationer.

    Advance bookings to Mexico for the Legacy Travel  agency are their strongest in 15 years, according to its Vice President, Catherine Banks.

    “Cost structure is different than most other places,” says Banks, meaning Mexico is inherently cheap.

    But combine that with the negative publicity of widespread drug violence (hundreds of kilometers from its most popular tourist spots) and a weak European economy that’s starving Mexico of its customary visitor base, and this country’s ready to make a deal.

    According to Banks, “In Cancun and Riviera Maya, there are more five-star resorts than the Caribbean and Hawaii combined, and the price isn’t close to the same.”

    And now they’re sitting empty.

    Currency conditions: The peso’s been weaker and inflation low in recent months, according to Forex.com Senior Currency Strategist Eric Viloria. So your money should stretch out quite a bit.

    Thailand

    There are enough statues in Bangkok for everyone, as long as photographers take turns.

    Eager to regain tourism lost to the political unrest and flooding of 2011, Thailand is closing itself out at rock-bottom prices.

    “Summer shoulder season (the narrow window between the low and high seasons) seems to be slower than usual,” says  Tony Cardoza, President of  Cardoza-Bungey Travel.

    ” As a result, we see very good four- and five-star hotels and resorts offering deals.”

    That means even cheaper accommodations at the lower ends.

    Currency conditions: The Australian dollar goes over 100 percent further in Thailand than at home, according to The Economist’s Big Mac index , and the euro and U.S. dollar rate almost as favorably.

    Myanmar (Burma) 

    Politically unrestful but restful for the traveler.

    The Republic of the Union of Myanmar could have picked a more profitable time in world economic history to open itself to outsiders, but its delayed departure from despotism is the traveler’s gain.

    “Burma today is similar to Southeast Asia of 20 years ago,” says Steven Larkin, President of Intrepid Travel. North America.

    But the plan going forward may be to go a higher-end route in the development of tourism than neighboring Thailand, so the time is now for a cheap, ethical trip, before even the first Starbucks moves in.

    This is the cheapest Myanmar will ever be.

    Currency conditions: Burma restructured its currency in early April, turning a fixed rate of 6.4 kyat per U.S. dollar to a floating rate of over 800 kyat per U.S. dollar. This should make exchange rates more reliable, but make sure to bring lots of paper money: Myanmar is still largely cash-only.

    Egypt

    Sharm El Sheikh is as relaxing as it ever was. And now it will also be less stressful for your wallet.

    Here’s that distressed inventory we talked about. Tasteless as it may sound, the Arab Spring may have enabled your spring break, driving down demand and prices right along with it.

    “The overall sentiment is that resort areas like Sharm El Sheik are very safe,” says a spokesperson for Hotwire.com. “but most vacationers appear to prefer traveling to Turkey and other destinations that haven’t seen as much civil unrest.”

    That preference has made Egypt a buyer’s market. The drop in demand has another benefit: smaller crowds.

    “Clients going now have been able to get pictures of themselves in front of the pyramids with no other tourists blocking the view,” says Cardoza.

    Your window may be closing, though; presidential elections are looming.

    Currency conditions: The Egyptian pound is sinking like a stone in recent futures trading, foreshadowing a devaluation of up to 50 percent or more. While that benefits foreign currency holders, it can also lead to inflation, making travel plans to Egypt even more urgent.

    Greece

    Honestly though — how could a place like this ever be less in demand?

    All of the turmoil in Greece has weakened tourist demand and, in turn, prices — for the present — but it’s uncertainty about the future that’s really driving down travel costs.

    Right now, many travelers are betting that already low rates will drop further should Greece fall out of the euro, so they’re delaying plans to visit there. This self-perpetuating drop in demand will depress prices even more in the meantime.

    As for the drawbacks, Hotwire’s spokesperson says flying through Athens is a bit risky in terms of service reliability. However, there has been an increase in air service directly to many of the larger island destinations, which are free of the unrest and demonstrations of the mainland, according to John Clifford of InternationalTravelManagement.com . Just make sure you hurry, while they still have roads and stuff.

    Currency conditions: The euro fell to a 16-month low against the US dollar earlier this year, a trend that Viloria sees continuing as debt concerns mount.

    Bonus destination: Spain

    It’s win-win: Spain gets your travel dollars and you get a great value holiday.

    Jetsetter Moves Beyond Flash Sales: Recommendations Now A Third Of Its

    Jetsetter Moves Beyond Flash Sales: Recommendations Now A Third Of Its Business

    Walmart Buys Facebook s Birthday And Holiday Reminder App Social Calendar

    Jetsetter. the exclusive travel community for globetrotters, seems to be on a roll. In recent days, the company has announced a dozen some new corporate partners, a handful of new sale formats to entice customers, and new distribution partnerships with high-profile sites like Kayak. The Economist  and the vacation rental service HomeAway .

    But while many think of Jetsetter as a flash sales for travel site, it’s been finding growth in other verticals: curated recommendations and personal service.

    Launched back in September 2009, Jetsetter was the first flash sales site for travel, and has now outlasted much of its earlier competition. Unlike online travel bookings sites aimed at helping users find the cheapest flights and hotel rooms, Jetsetter’s angle is different. It targets not the everyday traveler, but the affluent one.

    “Jetsetter customers tend to be six-figure incomes, college-educated professionals, and they tend to come from major urban markets – New York, San Francisco, L.A. Boston, Chicago,” explains Jetsetter CEO and founder Drew Patterson. “These are people for whom travel, and their experiences in travel, are an important part of their sense of self,” he says.

    Targeting the elite customer has, so far, paid off. Jetsetter now has 2.2 million members, and has sold over half a million room nights worldwide. On the company’s website, members can take advantage of flash sales on travel, which offer savings of up to 50% off. The site runs anywhere from 20 to 40 of these sales per week. There’s also an online concierge service for bookings to help customers with travel planning.

    The available inventory for travelers now includes over 650 hotels and resorts in Jetsetter 24/7, its full-price retail offering, which today accounts for over 30% of the company’s revenue. There are also nearly 300 homes in Jetsetter Homes, an increasingly popular vertical for the company, with 500 more in the process of being added.

    “The non-hotel category of lodging has been exploding,” says Patterson, noting consumers’ interest in companies like Airbnb and Inspirato, for example. “Consumers are hungry for something other than hotels. It’s nice to have common space, a kitchen and living room versus bedroom,” he adds. But Patterson says that it’s still hard to book vacation homes online, not only because there aren’t many systems that support online booking, but also because of security issues.

    “There are concerns and risks around financial settlement,” he says. “Typically you’re wiring funds with a homeowner, and you’ve never met this person before. You haven’t seen the product before. There’s a fair amount of risk and uncertainty involved in that.”

    Jetsetter wants to step in to be the middleman for those transactions, taking on the financial risk, he says. They curate and vet the properties, even going onsite to visit them. That helps to establish trust with their users.

    In addition to vacation rentals, Jetsetter’s personal travel planning offering executed 600 trips last year, despite having only launched in June. Today, there are approximately 400 trips in progress, which consumers booked thanks to the recommendations from Jetsetter’s network of over 200 correspondents – experienced travel experts and writers who visit the hotels and partners on Jetsetter’s behalf.

    It’s this focus on curation, personalization and recommendation that’s proving to be a growing part of Jetsetter’s business. One third of the company’s revenue came from retail in January, as customers seem willing to pay full price when recommendations are involved.

    Jetsetter is also going after customers through other verticals, specifically through new distribution partnerships like travel site Kayak.com  which will see all 650 Jetsetter hotels made available for bookings, as well as with the vacation rental website HomeAway. which is testing Jetsetter integration  with 150 homes. The company is also working with The Economist  on an exclusive 6-week campaign of flash sales curated for the outlet’s readers, which includes distribution through The Economist’s homepage, newsletters, social media and mobile.

    New sales formats have been recently introduced to provide a variety of experiences for Jetsetter customers. One, the “Mystery Monday” model, will provide deeper discounts to customers willing to book before learning the hotel’s name. It’s not all that unlike the blind bookings Priceline offers, but the hotels selected are of high quality, like The Ritz-Carlton, the Four Seasons, and The Surrey, all of which made an appearance in January.

    There are also two-to-three night getaways called Jetsetter Weekends, focused on a collection of inns and B B’s outside of Jetsetter’s top seven markets (N.Y. Boston, D.C. Miami, L.A. San Francisco, and Seattle). Meanwhile, new “Style Steals” offer discounted rooms at hip, boutique hotels. Jetsetter also says it occasionally runs sales for properties that prefer the voucher format like the Trump Hotel Collection, The Peninsula Hotels, Marquis Jets, and Groundlink, for example.

    With all these sales formats combined, it seems that you can no longer call Jetsetter just a “flash sales site” for travel, even though it has an association with sister site Gilt Groupe. known for its flash sale properties.

    “We obviously have a flash sale part of the business. That’s hugely important because that was our roots,” says Patterson. “But we also found that customers would write us early on and say, ‘I missed the sale. You emailed me something last week and it seemed great, but it’s not up there anymore. Just tell me what it was. It looked great and I want to go buy it.’”

    “We said, Huh?’” he laughs. “But we had enough of these that it seemed like consumers really seemed to trust our judgment. That judgment is an important part of our business and our brand.”

    And flash sales?

    “Flash sales can inspire consumers and give them ideas for where they should go,” he says.

    Southwest Airlines Now Totally Cool With Customers Kicking Muslims Off Flights

    Southwest Airlines Now Totally Cool With Customers Kicking Muslims Off Flights

    In two separate incidents this week, Southwest Airlines has kicked Arabic-speaking passengers off their flights following customer complaints. The airline doesn’t seem to understand this is something corporations should not do in 2015.

    Shop

    In one case, business owners Maher Khalil and Anas Ayyad were asked to step aside because fellow passengers were, according to NBC 10 Philadelphia, “afraid to fly with them.” Eventually, the boarding agent told the two men they could not get on the flight because other passengers overheard them speaking Arabic.

    “If that person doesn’t feel safe, let them take the bus,” Khalil said to a Southwest Airlines gate agent, according to NBC 10. “We’re American citizens just like everybody else.”

    As Gawker’s Melissa Cronin notes , this effectively deputizes bigots to eject whomever they want, a trend Southwest should put a stop to unless it wants to become the official airline for the country’s bigots.

    What makes matters worse is how the $6.7 billion company responded, with the following, tone-deaf statement:

    Safety is our primary focus, and our Employees are trained to make decisions to ensure that safety, and to safeguard the security of our Crews and Customers on every flight.

    What exactly was the safety risk here? Paranoid bigots demanding other passengers be removed from a flight is not the same thing as increasing safety.

    Will Southwest Airlines address these incidents responsibly, or will it continue to let racist morons determine safety policy for everyone else?

    UPDATE: Southwest airlines has returned Gawker’s request for comment. These responses are published below:

    Southwest Airlines sent Gawker the following statement. It did not address the second flight, nor answer a question regarding whether incidents like this will happen in the future.

    We had a slight delay boarding, lasting only a few minutes, while we completed a brief passenger conversation. All customers were boarded and traveled on to their scheduled destination, Philadelphia. Southwest Employees welcome hundreds of millions of Customers onboard annually. We are responsible for the comfort of all passengers and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind.

    Update 4:41 p.m.

    Southwest has issued a second statement, addressing the flight that the six Muslim passengers were not allowed to board.

    On Wednesday, Southwest Flight #126 from Chicago (Midway) to Houston (Hobby) was delayed departing the gate after several passengers refused to follow Crew instructions. Reports indicate that the situation involved seating arrangements and repeated attempts from those passengers involved to save seats and rearrange other passengers onboard the aircraft. Our crews were unable to resolve the situation without delaying the flight so we rebooked the customers on a later flight that same day.

    How To Safely Visit Thailand Right Now, Amid Protests And Travel Advisories

    NICOLAS ASFOURI via Getty Images

    Now is not the ideal time to be in Thailand.

    On Tuesday, Thai officials declared a state of emergency in Bangkok due to political protests that have been going on since November. The U.S. State Department has issued a travel alert too, warning citizens to avoid “large gatherings” in the greater Bangkok area.

    Things could calm down after Thailand’s political elections. scheduled to take place on February 2. But given the current state of things, nobody knows if the elections will happen for certain or if they’ll truly stop the protest frenzy.

    If you’ve got a trip to Thailand booked for the meantime, follow these tips to stay safe during your visit.

    • The bulk of protests have occurred in Bangkok– while you should stay cautious in other cities, this is the place of most concern. The State Department recommends staying away from “tourist attractions and popular shopping malls,” where protests have been known to take place. Redditors are quick to point out that these are just a few spots in a massive city– many areas of Bangkok are comparatively very safe, they say.
  • The State Department also recommends enrolling in STEP before your trip– it’s a service that makes it easier for them to contact you if there’s an emergency you should know about.
  • Write down contact info for the U.S. Embassy and consular offices near the city you’ll be visiting– they have email addresses and after-hours phone numbers in case you need help.
  • Follow the Bangkok American Citizen Services on Twitter, as well as local news sources. It’s the best way to get realtime updates if a protest breaks out near your location.
  • It’s still a good idea to purchase travel insurance, but there is no guarantee you’ll be covered during the protests. Travel insurance is meant to compensate you if “unforeseen” circumstances snag your plans. But since the government has now issued a warning about the Thailand protests, these circumstances are technically “foreseen.” Check with your specific provider to see how they’ll compensate if you have to change your trip.
  • Some airlines — most notably Singapore Airlines — have reduced numbers of flights to Bangkok due to decreased ticket sales from the protests. Most have re-scheduled passengers onto other flights without a problem, but it wouldn’t hurt to talk specifically with your airline about their plans.
  • As always, keep family and friends informed of your travel plans. It’s also a good idea to make a friend at your hotel’s front desk and inform them of which spots you plan to visit each day, along with a way to contact you while you’re out.
  • Happy Thai travels!

    Now s the time to get the cheapest holiday airline tickets

    #discount airline ticket
    #

    The best time to book your holiday flight is.

    If you’re planning on flying over the holidays, now’s the time book your tickets.

    The report, which was based on ticket sales between January 2013 through July 2014, also found Sunday is the cheapest day to buy plane tickets. This Sunday marks nine weeks until Christmas week, so the clock is ticking.

    “It’s about time we stop believing in the airfare voodoo that Tuesday is the best day to get good ticket prices,” said George Hobica, president of Airfarewatchdog.com. The average domestic fare paid on a Sunday is $71 cheaper than on a Monday, the most expensive day, the report showed.

    Getting a deal on holiday travel is always hard, but maybe even more so this year, according to Keith Nowak from Travelocity. He said supply and demand is in full effect, giving airlines the pricing power.

    Passengers are flying more this year than in the recent past, but airlines aren’t adding more seats, he said. “You’ve got passenger loads growing faster than seats being added. It’s clear given the current load factors, holiday planes are going to be full.”

    The most recent data from the Department of Transportation showed the number of domestic fliers in July was the highest since the end of the recession. U.S. airlines carried 385 million passengers, up 2.1% from 2013.

    Here are four expert tips to snag the best deals this holiday season:

    Book early. Booking early doesn’t always mean better prices, but you’re more likely to get the flight and seat you want, especially given the expected high demand.

    It’s all about value, said Hobica. “You can get a good deal on an ugly, ill-fitting cashmere sweater, or you can pay a little more and get what you want. Flying out at the crack of dawn, jammed in a middle seat is the ugly sweater.”

    Be flexible with dates, airports. Put in multiple nearby airports and try different arrival and departure dates when searching for flights.

    “You want to open up as many fare options as possible to increase your chances of finding the best deal,” said Nowak.

    And it’s not just about the ticket price. “Smaller airports might have significantly lower parking prices. If you’re gone for a week, that can be a lot of savings,” he said.

    Be persistent. Travelers can hold seats for up to 24 hours without purchasing them with most airlines now, said Hobica, which can make a plane appear fuller than it is and discourage potential fliers.

    “People hold seats and then release them. Keep checking the flight, you never know when something might open up.”

    Travel on the holiday. Flying on the actual holiday tends to bring lower prices. “If you fly late Christmas Eve, on Christmas Day or on January 1, those are always the cheapest days and times to fly,” said Hobica.

    Consider Europe. If visiting grandma in the states isn’t a requirement, travelers can find cheap affair to Europe right now, said Hobica.

    “And if you are in the mood to splurge, business class seats are 50-60% cheaper to Europe during the holidays.”

    STYLE WITHOUT THE PRICETAG Budget hotels don’t need to be style-free. Case in point: Ibis Styles hotels, which combine design elements with money-saving practicality. One of the best is the Ibis Styles Liverpool Centre in England. It’s a Beatles-themed bolthole in the heart of the Beatles’ homeland in northern England, which offers unlimited Wi-Fi and breakfast, along with rates that started at around $90 a night. See accorhotels.com.au .

    EXTRAS, EXTRAS: READ ALL ABOUT IT Added extras such as spa treatments, tours, meals and shopping can blow out a budget quick-smart. If you’re open to options when planning a holiday, subscribe to the Luxury Escapes email newsletter. The company bundles often heavily discounted multi-night accommodation in top-notch properties with a raft of bonuses and freebies. They have date flexibility and an incredible spread of holiday ideas. See luxuryescapes.com .

    The world is catching on to what the Japanese have known for years: you don’t need a whole lot of space for sleeping.

    PLAINLY, IT’S JANE New York is known for its glam, high-end hotels at eye-watering prices. But the Jane Hotel is an affordable gem. A former seaman’s lodgings built in the early 1900s on the Hudson, it was where the Titanic survivors were billeted during the American inquiry into the sinking. This quirky West Village property is also hipster heaven, with great bars and a unique “cabin” accommodation offering. A standard cabin, with shared bathroom facilities, starts at $140 a night. See thejanenyc.com .

    Corner Seaview suite at Ovolo Aberdeen Harbour, Hong Kong.

    HARBOURING INTENT Scrimp on room size, but not on style or extras, at Hong Kong’s cool Ovolo Aberdeen Harbour. In the southern district of Hong Kong Island, the working harbour is home to Hong Kong’s Tanka People, traditional fishers who live on their boats. The central city’s attractions are easily accessible by bus and MTR, but you pay a lot less than you might staying closer. Find rates as low as  $140 with breakfast and Wi-Fi included, through the various booking engines. See ovolohotels.com .

    DON’T BE POOR IN SINGAPORE Local Singaporean budget chain Hotel 81 has 24 properties throughout Singapore, each planned with proximity to public transport and attractions in mind. Find them near Gardens by the Bay, Singapore National Museum, Kampong Glam, Orchard Road, and the hip enclave of Tiong Bahru. Rooms from $93. See hotel81.com.sg .

    Advertisement

    NAME THAT TUNE Big capital accommodation is notorious for ripping gaping holes in holiday budgets. But if you’re prepared to strip it down to the comfortable basics in London and other cities in Britain,  Tune Hotels are for you. You only pay for what you use – so things like TV usage are extras. And if you bring your own towel, that’s even more savings. These amazingly well positioned, clean and comfortable central hotel rooms start at $120 a night in London, $55 elsewhere. Find them in Melbourne, India, Indonesia and Malaysia as well. See tunehotels.com .

    Pod 39 blue bunk. Pod Hotels, New York.

    MODERNE TIMES IN PARIS When visiting Paris, preparedness to stay outside the more touristy arrondissement can reward a traveller in more ways than one. Not only do you save euros on both accommodation and eating options in the area, you can see the Paris of the regular Parisians. For example, Hotel Home Moderne in the 15th is a traditional-style, simple hotel with outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor and rooms start from as little as $70 a night. See homemoderne.com

    BANG FOR YOUR BANGKOK BUCK A short walk to a BTS Station and with the kind of rooftop pool and bar you find at the bigger, glam Bangkok hotels, Hotel Icon is an accessible, smart and affordable option for those who have a transit night in the Thai capital, that time-wise warrants leaving the airport for a bit of sightseeing. Book in advance and get more than 50 per cent off its already excellent rates plus a free BTS pass. See hoteliconbangkok.com .

    ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYERS  Italy is full of beautiful, historic cloisters. You can be welcomed behind the walls as a paying guest. Some have curfews but many don’t. Even in premium locations such as Venice, find beautiful, welcoming and inexpensive lodgings dating back to the 1500s and beyond from lower than $60 a night.

    Pod 39 play room. Pod Hotels, New York.

    IN POD WE TRUST The world is catching on to what the Japanese have known for years: you don’t need a whole lot of space for sleeping. Enter the micro hotel, such as the Pod Hotels in New York City which offer “clean, efficient accommodation with an emphasis on lively communal spaces … bringing guests out of their rooms and into a social atmosphere”. Find ping pong, board games, free Wi-Fi, guest walking tours and other experiences. From $135 a night. See thepodhotel.com .

    Cheapest Flights to Barcelona

    Top Destinations Similar to Barcelona

    Barcelona Flights

    Visit the City of Counts

    Barcelona is a lovely city situated on the coast of Spain. It is the 16th most visited city in the world, and the fourth most visited city in Europe. People love taking vacations in Barcelona thanks to the city’s beautiful beaches, lively nightlife scene, great hiking, delicious cuisine, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and excellent museums. Fashionistas will especially love Barcelona, which is the seventh most important fashion capital in the world. Get ready to eat, drink and shop your way through this fabulous city by booking your cheap flights to Barcelona on Expedia today.

    Airports in Barcelona

    Most flights to Barcelona land at Barcelona Intl. Airport (BCN), also known as Barcelona-El Prat Airport. It is located in southwestern Barcelona. BCN is the second largest airport in Spain, the ninth busiest airport in Europe and the 31st busiest airport in the world. Airlines that have a major presence at BCN include Vueling, Ryainair and Iberia Regional. Some Barcelona flights land at Sabadell Airport, which is located in the town of Sabadell, and Girona-Costa Brava Airport, which is located near the city of Gibrona.

    Book your flight with Expedia

    Expedia lets you search across the largest number of airlines and flights, which means that you’ll be able to find great flight deals at the perfect travel date and time. There’s simply no substitute for great prices suited to your flight needs and backed by excellent customer support.

    Tips on booking your Barcelona airfare

    Tickets to Barcelona are popular during the high season months of March to August. During the summer, the weather is fantastic, and there are plenty of fun events going on. The shoulder season is from September to October, and the low season is from November to December. If you can’t afford to visit Barcelona during the summer, then definitely visit during the fall; you may have missed all the summer events, but there are still plenty of events going on in the fall. To save the most money, however, visit Barcelona during the winter; the weather’s not that bad, and the city will be empty. To save even more money, consider booking your flights on weekdays and not weekends. Try getting flights with layovers instead of direct flights, and consider landing at a smaller airport located outside of Barcelona instead of Barcelona’s main airport.

    Egypt, why to go now #hotel #travel.com

    Egypt, why to go now

    Giza pyramids, Egypt. And yes, they are as uncrowded as this right now. Photograph: Steven Allan/Getty Images

    The sun is soft and warm as I write this. It hangs delicately a little way above the westerly line of palms, mango and guava trees. The waves beat a rhythm against the steel hull, ropes creak occasionally as they hold back two massive sails filled by a fresh northerly breeze, a donkey brays from the banks and a bunch of kids call hello until I wave. I am not a born sailor, but I am on a dahabiya. a replica of the sort of sailing boat an 18th-century grand tourist would have taken – with en suite bathroom, Wi-Fi and a few other modern comforts added. The wind in Egypt blows from the north, the Nile flows from the south, so we are sailing sedately upstream and although I bow to the inevitable, part of me wishes we might never pull in to land.

    Over lunch, the dozen other passengers and myself smile the smile of the smug. The boat is ours in the same way that the Pyramids and Karnak temple had been ours: there were no other foreigners. It is no secret that foreigners are staying away from Egypt, but I have never known it as extreme as this. It occurs to me that there were fewer visitors when we went to the Valley of the Kings on Sunday than there might have been if we had come in 1850. Reasons for this are hard to find.

    Last year was a turbulent one for Egyptians, with the downfall of President Mohamed Morsi and his government and the violent dispersal of Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations by Egypt’s security services sparking violent protests. But none of the tumult was aimed at foreigners, which was why, even though demonstrations and sporadic anti-military violence continue, the Foreign Office has no objection to our travelling to Cairo, Luxor and the south. But visitors have been nervous since 2011, when former President Hosni Mubarak was forced from office, and they have been slow to return to the capital or along the Nile.

    A dahabiya on the Nile. Photograph: Alamy

    The situation was made worse a month ago when a jihadist group bombed a bus of Korean tourists in Taba, north Sinai. The Foreign Office has put Taba, Dahab and Nuweiba on the avoid all travel list, but Sharm el-Sheikh, the biggest of the Sinai resorts, at the southern tip of the peninsula, is still considered safe to visit, and direct flights are still available. Besides, Taba is several hundred miles from Cairo and the Nile, and the problem there is very different from the stand-off between the military and the Muslim Brotherhood. Staying away from Egypt because of what is happening in Sinai would be similar to avoiding London because of trouble in Belfast, and yet tourist numbers have plummeted.

    The extent of this collapse in tourism was apparent the moment I boarded the Egyptair flight in London. Online check-in had made it look as though the flight was full – as it would have been in March four years ago – but the plane was half-empty. Cairo is such a fantastically vibrant city that it can be impossible to gauge the presence of foreigners, but there were only a handful of tourist minibuses at the Pyramids, no other foreigners at the Sphinx and we had the Tutankhamun galleries and the rest of the Egyptian Museum to ourselves.

    A line of around 20 armoured vehicles parked ou tside the museum, with a soldier at each gun and watched by men from several police vans wrapped in barbed wire, made me wonder if they knew something that I – and the FCO – did not. The Museum sits on the edge of Tahrir Square, once famous for its traffic jams, now better known for anti-government demonstrations. But the square remained calm, the visit to the museum eerily quiet.

    Luxor was just as good – or bad, depending on your point of view – because while an empty Valley of the Kings may be brilliant for those of us who enjoy looking at decorated tombs without being harassed by hordes of day-trippers from the Red Sea, revenue from 20 or so visitors the morning I was there is not enough to pay for the lighting of the tombs, nor to put food in the mouths of the guards and hawkers and their families.

    Luxor, too, is almost empty. Photograph: Jean-Pierre Lescourret/Getty Images/Lonely Planet Images

    Luxor relies on tourism, so when western governments imposed travel bans last summer, many hotels simply locked their doors: occupancy dropped to 1%. Thanks to the efforts of the energetic and enthusiastic tourism minster, Hisham Zaazou, the ban was lifted last November, but the crowds have not returned. The Luxor corniche used to be infamous for its boat touts and cal che drivers pestering any visitor who went out for a walk. They have now disappeared because there is no one for them to pester. The traders who once made it impossible to walk through Luxor souk no longer harangue you as you pass. Want to look? one asked and, when I declined, he simply said, No problem. Have a nice day.

    Which brings me back to the Nile and this second nice day afloat. Egypt is as stunning as ever to visit – especially this week as freak rains have just washed the dust of many years off the countryside, leaving the blue sky, the green palm trees, the cream temple walls and the sandstone hills more brilliant than ever. In the morning, we were alone at the tombs and ruined city. In the afternoon, when we stopped at Edfu to see the best-preserved of all Egypt’s temples, we expected no crowds. We were expecting no bother, either.

    Are you kidding? said one of my fellow travellers when I asked if anyone was bothered by security concerns. I know this situation is bad for Egypt, but it could not be better for you and me. She looked across the empty river where very few boats now run, and watched a heron glide to land on a clump of bulrushes.

    There are things happening in Egypt – two presidents are up for trial, most of Sinai is in a mess, an election is expected – but the news that matters for people wanting to visit is good: direct flights to Luxor have resumed, new archaeological discoveries have been made, a replica of Tutankhamun’s tomb is due to open next month …

    There is no shortage of brilliant things to see in Egypt, just a shortage of people to see them.

    Soliman Travel offers seven nights in a five-star Luxor hotel from 465pp, including flights from Heathrow; and a three-night city break to Cairo, also including flights, from 499pp. Nour el Nil (+20 11 16 55 88 83, nourelnil.com) offers a five-night dahabiya cruise departing from Luxor from €1,100pp, including all meals and excursions

    The Patagonia Region Offers Natural Beauty Like No Other Place On Earth

    If you’re thinking of visiting South America, consider the Patagonia region. The Patagonia region rests on the southern portion of South America, partially in connection with Argentina and Chile.

    Since it was discovered, and word of its scenery was told, it has awakened fascination, curiosity, and desire for the remote, untouched, and mysterious. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking, and it is not mimicked anywhere else in the world.

    The Patagonia region expands just south of the Colorado river in Argentina, wedged in between the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. You can really get a feel for what nature looks like unscathed by man. It is a primitive, serene, raw, and awesome nature.

    The semi-arid plateaus of the Eastern part of the Patagonia region are surreal to look at. The Western mountain ranges have deep valleys and canyons, are overspread with trees, and they are topped with snow and dotted with glaciers and lakes. The various elements’ combinations are what’s so breathtaking. It’s seeing all this raw nature in its purest form.

    In Chile, the Patagonia region goes from the 8th region to down below to Tierra del Fuego island, connecting to an area of magnificent natural beauty and disarming sublimity. There are volcanoes, lakes, and forests too.
